Wounded Warrior Project Connects Veterans with US Forest Service Jobs
An experienced physician and researcher, Dr. Erol Onel serves as vice president of Heron Therapeutics in La Jolla, California. Outside of his professional life, Dr. Erol Onel supports the efforts of the Wounded Warrior Project.
Recently cohosting an informational seminar with the United States Forest Service, the Wounded Warrior Project helped educate injured veterans about jobs with the Forest Service. At the event, veterans learned new job-search strategies, met with other service personnel, and were shown how to perform job searches with the US Forest Service database.
Forest Service personnel informed veterans about jobs they may not have considered pursuing, such as careers in the administrative and information technology divisions of the agency. Veterans also were given resume-writing and interviewing tips. A question-and-answer period wrapped up the event, with veterans gaining insight from Forest Service personnel about their experiences in the agency and how their careers developed over time.
